I hate to be blunt, but that is one of the ugliest caps I have seen on a newer model Ranger. The lines don't line up well with the rest of the truck . I'd sell it. I wouldn't have even considered it for my truck, maybe a doghouse.

lol well its for using, not for looks. When I go on vacation, for example to north carolina outer banks this summer, I throw all the luggage in the bed, along with a couple bikes. What if it rains on the drive down or back up? Well now I dont have to worry, it will all stay dry. When I go camping in the woods, we sometimes wheel out to a spot, pitch a tent and chill out in the woods (not camping sites) sleeping on rocks and roots. Now, I can just throw the top and and throw a matress in the back and be good and comfortable. I will not keep it on my truck like you do mike, yours is always on and is for looks as well as use. I would have loved to have gotten a nice newer cap with nice paint and all, but there is nothing on craigslist that fits and looks good for under $350

...as long as you only have it on the truck when you're using it, then it's okay. It looks like it was made out of old Winnebago scraps and house siding lol.

lol ya dude I like the way trucks look better without a topper, they look more like a truck than an suv, But It will be very helpful at times to have, especially when I move, I can just pile **** up to the top

This is one of the nicest shells I've seen. This is D-Rock's truck.

One other comment. You should take the bed rail covers off when you have the cap on or it will scratch the bed rails more and it will also give the cap more of a chance to slide around.

i had my bed liner in when i have my cap in i just clamp it down really tight and dont worrie about it those bed liners scratch the top of the rails more then the caps not on. they move alot more when the caps arent on.


I hate my cap i only put it on when i have too its the damn reason i backed into a tree last year to many blind spots
